Chthonic

Working on characters for etsy, and for COMIC-CON!! I'm still making these wiggly little guys — I just luv working in shells; it seems like it helps keep me connected to the ocean...


And speaking of water — yesterday we went hiking at
Elizabeth Lake.


That's a red-winged blackbird; we must have been close to a nest, cos it was keeping a pretty good eye on us. The last time we were out here, it took about an hour to go 'round the whole lake. This time it took an hour plus to get 'round a small portion. Go rain!

I can't believe it's getting to be time for SDCC already. I'm going to do the annual pre-Comic Con class in San Diego...looks like this year we'll be doing Steampunk Oddfae!


The dates will be July 15/16. Stay tuned for more details
regarding the class as it gets closer to July...

I'm Ba-aaack...



Hey kids! I'm back from my "medical leave". Some of you know I have rheumatoid arthritis, which can be debilitating when it flares up — and that's what happened to me recently.

My RA doc and GP have had me on "vacation" from everything; no sculpting, no computer, no beadwork, NOTHING. I almost went bonkers. Well, more so than I already am...

I just got the green light, as long as I take it easy, to get back to work. I'm working on a commission at the mo', and it's time to think about sculpting stuff for Comic-Con already!!

Busy Busy!
Ciao for now — D

New Project

Hey kids! I am working on an awesome project — dolls to represent figures from Inuit folklore! This guy will be The Troll with the Long Claws, a cannibal figure.



I'll have some more pix as he progresses...and my Patreon subscribers get step-out and video lessons as I'm working on him!

Another Great Play Day

Spent the weekend once again in San Diego, my home away from home. A fun dinner at La Jolla Public House Saturday nite with the Blue Blazers was followed Sunday by a play day at Sue Roos' studio.

Sue is a fabulous hostess, and there was dollmaking, sculpting, jewelry-making and a good time had by all. Beautiful weather and a great lunch off the barbecue topped it off!

In other news, I'm working away on classes and commissions, and we have a new kittykid! Brrt is a curious lil guy, that talks to himself as he explores, hence the name. His other name may be Goblin, cos he's sure gobblin' the kibble!


A newly-finished Wolfie


Pardon the photo quality — my studio is such a mess, I can't find my photo cube; guess I'd better get up there and get cleaning! TTFN

Cthulhu R’lyeh...Part Two

Well, I finally have one of my Elder Spawn in my Etsy shop, and working on more.


Pardon the paint on my hands, the pix were taken straight from the sculpting table!

There's a Jack on Etsy, too...


...and I'm working on a Wolfie for a commission!


If you're a Patron, I've just posted a quick step-out tutorial on sculpting Wolfie's face.

Where has the year gone? I need to finish my Jax so I can start on Christmas!! Anybody have any wishes for XMas oddfae? Maybe a Santa Wolfie...
